Believable, of course, providing you accept a cloak that makes an ordinary boy invisible; a king who can't figure out what his 12 daughters are up to after bedtime; and a magic forest of jeweled trees with a dozen handsome, dancing princes.

This week's word: SCATHING Those fine fellows the Vikings, after an interval of raiding and pillaging seaside villages in Britain, came to think that it would be simpler and just to conquer the territory, and so they did. They did eventually leave, but not without depositing some Old Norse words, like knife , in English.

The opening scene went something like this: Setting: Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab building 17 cafeteria -- Fall 2009 Rocket Scientist #1: I do community theater. Rocket Scientist #2: I almost minored in theater in college. Rocket Scientist #1: Really? We should start a drama club here. Rocket Scientist #2: I'm in. Rocket Scientist #1: OK, good. For Big Science types at APL, tilting too far to their logical, self-controlled left brains could be hazardous. But that's less of an issue since the curtain was raised on the APL Drama Club by mission designer Chris Dong and fellow space department member Dawn Moessner, a mission design analyst.
